Tanned, Bronzed and Beautiful for your Wedding Day

Ladies, it’s the best day of your life but also the day that requires a lot of preparation and planning! After all, they say you only get married once! It’s only natural that on your wedding day, you want to look your beautiful, gorgeous self and exude all your best features. Whether you are getting married in the summer or winter season, Caribbeantan Professional Self-Tan and Tan Care Range is key to a seamless and beautiful tan that looks flawless and most importantly, natural. No need to stress about a botched, orange tan on your special day. Let Caribbeantan help you take the stress off wedding planning with our top tips on getting a professional Caribbeantan self-tan before your big day:


1. Only use certified Caribbeantan Self-Tan Products and Salon-Approved Therapists

Did you know that Caribbeantan was the first professional spray tan established in South Africa? Boasting several awards and taking the tanning industry by storm for more than a decade, it is no wonder that Caribbeantan is a firm favourite amongst the tanning community. Brides, expect great quality yet affordable products that will leave you with a natural-looking tan. Caribbeantan only has FDA-approved ingredients that are safe, free of parabens and not known to cause adverse or allergic reactions so you don’t have to worry if this is your first time tanning before your big day. We know you only want perfection on your big day and Caribbeantan’s winning formula will ensure a long-lasting, streak-free tan that is natural and beautiful. To top it off, Caribbeantan is also animal cruelty free!

2. Ensure you get your final spray tan two days before your wedding day

Ensure a flawless, natural tan when having your tan done by a Caribbeantan Salon Therapist, unless you are a regular home self-tanner, then the Caribbeantan DIY self-tan range will definitely get the job done too. However, in-salon tanning by a trained professional will take a huge load of stress off your wedding preparation. Ensure you receive your final tan two days before your wedding day. After your tan, shower a minimum of three times BEFORE getting into your wedding dress to minimise any product transfer onto your dress. Despite Caribbeantan being water soluble and safe on most fabrics and bed sheets, extra caution should be taken regarding white clothing or light-coloured fabrics especially if you perspire a lot. However, Caribbeantan has been specially formulated to leave no excess bronzer on the skin due to the active ingredient DHA (Dihydroxyacetone), which penetrates the first layer of your skin, instantly enhancing your natural tan. Remember your first shower should be 8 hours after you receive your spray tan. Click on the link to locate your nearest Caribbeantan Salon Therapist.

3. Prep your skin before tanning for a seamless tanning experience

To achieve a patch and streak-free tan, it is important to prep your skin before heading to the salon. We advise shaving or waxing any areas that will be tanned 12-24 hours prior to your appointment. Use the Caribbeantan Cinnamon & Coconut Skin Smoothing Exfolia to remove dead skin cells especially on the driest areas of the body such as the ankles, elbows and knees. The Caribbeantan Skin Smoothing Exfolia’s natural sugar exfoliators will banish any dry skin, leaving you with a silky-smooth canvas ready for tanning. The exfolia also contains jojoba oil that will instantly restore moisture to your skin. Did we mention how heavenly this exfolia smells? You are sure to look and feel like a goddess on your wedding day!

4. Prolong your tan using the Caribbeantan Milk & Honey Hydrating Body Butter

Whether you are jet-setting to your honeymoon destination after your wedding or just enjoying post-wedding marital bliss, once you’ve achieved your flawless Caribbeantan tan, it’s only natural that you will want to stay a bronzed and beautiful goddess for as long as you can. The key to a long-lasting tan? Moisturising! It is important to keep your skin well-hydrated and moisturised due to the skin’s natural exfoliation process every 28 days. Keeping the skin moisturised will delay this natural process and avoid your tan from fading and becoming patchy. Use the Caribbeantan Milk & Honey Hydrating Body Butter at least every second day especially around areas prone to dry skin such as the knees, ankles and elbows. Indulge your skin with the velvety-smooth texture of the Milk & Honey Body Butter as it instantly penetrates the skin upon application leaving your skin smooth, supple and most importantly, non greasy. Its formula is enriched with essential vitamins and antioxidants that improve the skin’s elasticity and boost collagen production all whilst prolonging your tan for up to 10 days.

5. Do a tan trial to ensure a flawless tan on your wedding day

You want everything perfect on your wedding day and your tan should not be excluded from this list. We highly recommend a tan trial a day before your makeup trial so that the makeup artist can match your foundation to your tan. This is essential to ensuring you look perfect from head to toe on your wedding day and that your tan remains natural and best suited to your skin tone.


For an added glow, enhance your tan using the Caribbeantan Tinted Body Bronzer Shimmer Cream

For some extra glow that will have you radiating down the aisle, why not try the Caribbeantan Tinted Body Bronzer Shimmer Cream? This velvety-smooth cream will enhance and illuminate your tan, instantly transforming you into a golden goddess. It has the same skin-refining properties as the Caribbeantan Milk & Honey Hydrating Body Butter but just with a little extra sparkle. You only get married once - it’s okay to be EXTRA on the most wonderful day of your life all whilst keeping your skin healthy, smooth and moisturised in addition to prolonging the life of your tan. Be sure to apply the shimmer cream using the Caribbeantan Tan Application Mitt to avoid staining your hands and ensure the shimmer cream is completely dry before putting on your wedding dress!

It’s no wonder Caribbeantan Professional Self-Tan and Tan Care Range have been pioneers in the tanning industry all these years. They have seamlessly thought of everything to ensure flawless, natural tans even for your wedding day. Now there’s no need to stress about patchy, uneven and unnatural tans even if you are not a frequent tanner.
